This is the best way to fix this issue on OS X. If you don't have homebrew installed, now is the perfect time to fix that too. ;-)
Mac install ssh-copy-id
From there on out, you would upload keys to a server like this:
(make sure to double quote the full path to your key)
ssh-copy-id -i "/PATH/TO/YOUR/PRIVATE/KEY" username@server
or, if your SSH server uses a different port (often, they will require that the port be '2222' or some other nonsense:
(note the double quotes on *both* the "/path/to/key" and "user@server -pXXXX"):
ssh-copy-id -i "/PATH/TO/YOUR/PRIVATE/KEY" "username@server -pXXXX"
...where XXXX is the ssh port on that server
